Cumbria police launch appeal after cyclist seriously hurt in crash

A cyclist seriously hurt in a crash is still recovering in a north east hospital a month later.

Police have appealed for anyone who saw the incident to contact them to help with their investigation.

The 56-year-old man, from Lytham St Annes, sustained fractures to his right shoulder, collar bone, ribs, vertebrae in his neck and lower back and a punctured lung.

He remains in James Cook Hospital, Middlesbrough, in a stable condition, following the crash at about 2.30pm on April 30 on the Nateby Road near to the B6270.

His family today thanked the ambulance and air ambulance services for their "fantastic treatment" at the scene and added: “We would also like to thank James Cook Hospital for the care they have provided and without this, he would not be able to see his new born granddaughter for the first time.”

PC Richard Bowman, who is leading the investigation, said police were keen to locate the driver of a dark coloured hatchback who may have stopped to help but drove away as others attended to the man.

"We would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the cyclist on the Nateby Road at around 2pm or later. Any information would help us in what happened,” he added.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 and speak to PC Bowman in the Operational Support Unit.
